Fantasy Live allows each team to try and predict the driver who will win the pole each week. You do not have to make a pick, but if you do and you are correct; your fantasy team will earn 5 bonus points. These points can add up and be the difference in a few positions in your league standings so we need to get them right this year.
Here is my pick for the Pole at Talladega: Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
This will be the most unpredictable race of the season. The NASCAR teams do not even know what to expect. NASCAR keeps changing the aero package and with the speeds over 204 MPH in final practice, there is no guarantee we saw the final aero package in practice. They may try to slow down the cars ever more.
I will go with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for the pole. Roush Fenway Racing has a lot of speed this week. Ryan Newman posted the fastest speed in final practice and Stenhouse was second. Stenhouse also had the fastest 10-lap average speed in practice. Stenhouse won the pole for the spring race at Talladega in 2017. I think he will do it again Saturday evening.
Good Luck this week!!
